The Android 5.0 (Lollipop) update was expected to roll out to previous Nexus devices (Nexus 4 smartphone, Nexus 5 smartphone, Nexus 7 tablet, and Nexus 10 tablet) this week, but the week is about to end and still no Lollipop treatment for the devices. According to a post on Google+, the update was pushed a week back and will be rolled out to the said devices on the 12th of November.
Disappointed? Don’t be. It’s actually a good thing. Google is reportedly making sure that it has ironed out the bugs before it rolls out the update to the Nexus 4, 5, 7, and 10.
It’s also possible that the search giant wants the rollout of the update to coincide with the launch of the Nexus 6, its new phablet manufactured by Motorola, which is scheduled to launch in the US next week. Why? Google wants Lollipop users to make fun of owners of devices running an outdated version of Android. So, if you own a Nexus 4 and come across a friend who owns a Nexus 6, you’re sure you won’t won’t be made fun of.
Looking forward to Android 5.0 (Lollipop) for your Google Nexus 4, Google Nexus 5, Google Nexus 7, or Google Nexus 10? Phones LTD will let you know once the update is available in the UK.
